Aaron Paul joins cast of 'Westworld' Season 3
Breaking Bad alum Aaron Paul has been cast in the upcoming third season of HBO sci-fi series, Westworld.

Paul's role on the drama is being kept under wraps with Deadline noting that the actor will be a series regular.

"I feel like I'm in a dream Dolores. Can you wake me up from this dream? #Westworld," Paul said on Twitter in reference to Evan Rachel Wood's Dolores character.

Westworld, which explores artificial consciousness, was renewed for a third season in May. Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright and James Marsden also star as part of the ensemble cast.

Paul, a three-time Emmy winner, is best known for portraying Jesse Pinkman on AMC's Breaking Bad. He also starred on Hulu series The Path which was canceled after three seasons in April. He will be seen on Apple's upcoming drama, Are You Sleeping?


John Legend named coach for Season 16 of 'The Voice'
Music superstar John Legend has signed on as a coach for Season 16 of the singing competition series The Voice, NBC announced Thursday.

He will join Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as mentors. Carson Daly will be back as host.

"So excited!" Legend tweeted.

The entertainer cemented his EGOT status last weekend after he won an Emmy as a producer for the network's concert event Jesus Christ Superstar, in which he also sang and acted.

Legend won an Oscar in 2015 for his original song "Glory" (co-written by Common) from the movie "Selma;" and a Tony Award in 2017 as producer of August Wilson's Jitney, which won for Best Revival of a Play. He also has 10 Grammy Awards for his recording efforts.

"John Legend is a one-of-a-kind musician and producer with remarkable skills that are beyond measure," Paul Telegdy, president of the alternative and reality group for NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "His multi-dimensional career and incredible talents provide a repertoire that will excite and inspire our artists. This coaching panel is sure to ignite Season 16."

Season 15 of The Voice kicks off Sept. 24. The coaches are Clarkson, Levine, Shelton and Jennifer Hudson.

"I've chosen to be with the man I love despite the complications. It's frustrating, to be honest, that the spotlight is always shifted away from my career toward my relationship. I don't think the same happens in conversations with men."

'Designing Women' revival heading to ABC, not CBS
A sequel series following up the Georgia-set sitcom Designing Women will air on ABC, not the original show's home of CBS.

Starring Dixie Carter, Annie Potts, Jean Smart, Delta Burke and Meschach Taylor, the series initially ran 1986-93. It followed the lives of the Sugarbaker sisters and their colleagues at an upscale, interior design firm.

"I'm very excited to be working with ABC. And Sony has always been a great partner for Designing Women. Normally, I'm not a fan of reboots but Designing Women does seem to have the right fengshui for all that is going on right now. We could definitely have some fun," series creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason told The Hollywood Reporter.

No casting has been disclosed yet. Carter and Taylor died after the original series ended.

Reports that Bloodworth-Thomason was looking for a network to partner with on a revival of Designing Women have been swirling since last month.

Bloodworth-Thomason's announcement that she had gotten a script commitment from ABC came a day after she penned a guest column in the entertainment trade newspaper, condemning CBS Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves for maligning her career by refusing to give her another show, despite the enormous success of Designing Women.

"I was never sexually harassed or attacked by Les Moonves. My encounters were much more subtle, engendering a different kind of destruction," Bloodworth-Thomason wrote.

Moonves resigned this week amid allegations of sexual harassment. He has denied any wrongdoing.

The sequel to Designing Women is part of a recent trend of reviving shows from the 1980s and '90s. Among the familiar-sounding titles brought back -- most of which with their original casts intact -- are Twin Peaks, Murphy Brown, Full House, Roseanne and Will & Grace.


Kelly Clarkson announces 2019 North American tour
Kelly Clarkson has announced a new North American tour that begins in 2019 in support of her album, Meaning of Life.

The tour is set to kick off on Jan. 24 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland before wrapping up on March 30 at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C.

Clarkson will also be performing in cities such as Los Angeles, Kansas City, Detroit, Chicago, Dallas, Boston, Cleveland and Nashville, among others.

Joining Clarkson as opening acts will be singers Kelsea Ballerini and Brynn Cartelli. Tickets go on sale for the general public starting on Sept. 24. A pre-sale for American Express card members will take place from Sept. 17 at 10 a.m. until Sept. 23 at 10 p.m.

Clarkson posted on Instagram Friday a promotional video for the tour featuring herself, Ballerini and Cartelli singing together.

Which 'Will & Grace' actor got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

Eric McCormack was honored with the 2,644th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday.

McCormack was honored for his career in television and on Broadway during a ceremony in front of the Eastown apartment complex on Hollywood Boulevard ahead of the premier of Season 10 of Will & Grace, which was revived last year.

During his speech McCormack reflected on his life-long love of acting and thanked his parents, his wife Janet Holden and his son Finnigan McCormack.

He also described gratitude for the opportunity to star as Will Truman in Will & Grace alongside cast mates Megan Mullally, Debra Messing and Sean Hayes who were in attendance.

"The only reason I am really here today is because 20 years ago Max Mutchnick and David Kohan trusted me with the role of a lifetime, NBC trusted me and eventually a whole community -- the LGBTQ community -- trusted me with their story and I'm so grateful for that for the rest of my life," McCormack said. "With that trust came a gift, three gifts actually, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally."

Mutchnick, co-creator of Will & Grace, described McCormack's character as a "better version" of himself, partly due to McCormack's "extraordinary" performances. He also said he didn't believe McCormack didn't receive his due recognition for his work because he portrayed a gay character.

"Eric's work belongs not just in the canon of gay popular culture, but in the canon of popular culture period," he said. "The fact that this gay leading man is played by a straight actor is a testament not only to his skill but to his bravery."

Mutchnick also commended McCormack for inspiring LGBTQ youth through his role on the show.

"By showing up on Thursday nights in our living room and playing a gay man with a stunning amount of integrity, Eric tells our audience that it doesn't just get better, it gets fabulous," he said.

McCormack made his first television appearance in 1987 in an episode of the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. comedy Hangin' In and earned his first series role in the Western Lonesome Dove: The Series from 1994-1996.

He then starred in the original run of Will & Grace from 1998 to 2006 and was nominated for the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy four times for his role in the show, winning once in 2001.

In addition to starring in the revival of the series, McCormack also stars in the Netflix science fiction series Travelers.

"These stars are about the future, generations to come understanding and appreciating what came before them," McCormack said. "I was born in Canada, I will probably die in Canada, but a little piece of me will always be right here where I always dreamed it would be.
